tv The Lead With Jake Tapper CNN July 21, 2015 1:00pm-2:01pm PDT
cnn's founder in downtown atlanta. all of us here at cnn -- i can't say, thank you ted turner. >> i'm brook baldwin, thank you so much for being with me here we'll see you this time tomorrow. let's go to washington the lead with jake tanner starts right now. breaking details about an ice ilgs inspired plot to killeen more american troops. i'm jake tapper, this is the lead. >> the national lead two suspected isis sympathizers. the man who murdered five u.s. members in tennessee. he followed the same al qaeda leader who influenced the terrorist who shot up fort hood. will dash cam video hold any answers after an african-american woman who spoke out in the traffic stop and died herself. her family says there's no way
she killed herself. >> the politics lead ringing endorsement? donald trump giving out 9 private cell phone number of a senator who happens to be a rival republican candidate, this as a new poll shows trump blowing away the rest of the republican field. >> we'll begin today with our national lead two simm pa thesers arrested and charge with plotting to attack service members in the u.s. they're accused of trying to travel to syria to try to join isis. this comes as u.s. law enforcement officials are piecing together a clearer picture of what likely inspire ed mohammed youssuf abdelazeez.
abdulazeez researched religious martyr dom 24 hours before his deadly rampage. al alackey was killed by a u.s. drone strike in 2011 his fiery sermons live on. they are still readily available and would be access online. >> we're told he's being held by authorities in jordan. what can you tell us about that? >> this is his uncle that lives in jordan and he's being held and questioned by authorities in jordan. that's according to his lawyer who was taken into custody on friday. that's one day before the shooting happened. this is not assumed he's guilty in anyway that he has any sort of involvement in the shooting
but this is certainly one more piece to this complicated puzzle. >> tonight investigators are focusing on how this man may have been a motivation behind the tennessee shooting spree. in writings examined by the fbi. abdulazeez as far back as 2013 wrote he agreed with some parts of the radical teachings. al alaki has inspired a recent series of terror attacks. including the shooting in paris in the boston marathon bombings. >> it's the preswitter inspiration. someone who would show up again and again in various attacks as being a figure who they looked upon as being inspirational and particularly authoritative. >> investigators have uncovered data found on abdul aseize' cell
phone. questioning whether someone could use martyr dom to atone for sins. he was coping with losing his job because of drug issues. three months ago, he was arrested and charged with a dui. police noticed a white powder under his nose at the time. the fbi is focusing in on the 48 to 72 hours leading up to the shootings. putting together a time line. he rented the mustang convertible to thursday's attack. so far, investigators have found no communication or coordination with any terror group, they continue to sort through what has emerged as a complicated and conflicting web of views. >> assuming he wasn't connected to any group. that's the difficult type to
stop. someone that isn't acting on a group's behest. >> all the signs really do seem to be pointing to the motive being terrorism. at this time investigators are still saying there is no conclusive motive as this investigation goes forward. >> live in chattanooga, tennessee, thank you very much. president obama ordered the flags to be lowered to half staff. as a mark of respect for the five service members murdered in chattanooga. in a speech to veterans today, the president paid tribute to the lives they led. >> back in massachusetts, tom sullivan cheered for his boston teams and battled -- sully was everything that a marine should be. growing up in georgia, skip wells was a true leader, devoted to god and his friends. quick to lend a hand or put you on his prayer list. a friend said skip was the kind of kid you want on your team. as an eagle scout in arkansas
david wyatt would race up a mountain to be the first on top, he led with courage in afghanistan and iraq. and with compassion as a mentor to comrades with posttraumatic stress. back home he loved country music, loved to fish to hunt play football. and he loved the marines. and in his hometown in ohio randall smith is remembered as the high school baseball star with a fierce pitch. he was a fun and outgoing guy. a guy you wanted to be around. today we join the people of ohio including vfw post 187. >> law enforcement officials are pouring over evidence trying to determine if abdulazeez had any impact with the terror group here to talk about the latest
investigation, i want to get to the tennessee shooting in a minute. can you tell us about the latest plot in the u.k. to attack american military service members overseas. >> remember the season of ramadan, there are a lot of directives going out to attack kill military -- there's a u.k. plot that busted armed forces day, we had our july 4th plot in new york the same type of threat. now, this is similar to that in terms of an attack on military in the u.k. and these two individuals were getting ready to go to syria as well. it's just a -- every week we're hearing about one of these plots. we saw one successfully pulled off in charting into ga. >> the media has been focusing a lot on isis we're told today that abdulazeez was following al
alaki, the radical cleric. does that surprise you that he was inspired by al qaeda, and not isis? >> not at all. he's probably one of the most inspiring figures over the internet he's the head of aquap in the arabian peninsula. he was an american associated with the 9/11 plot 9/11 hijackers. he really predates isis if you will the idea -- he's been memorialized as a saint almost in the radical jihad world. so it doesn't surprise me at all. this is the same guy that radicalized major hassan in ft. hood and countless others to conduct geehood, i think this link is significant. i've been saying all along, certainly the least inspired plot we don't know if it was directed yet or not. but the fact is that if he's pulling up militant jihadist
websites and also mr. al alaki's inspirational sermons, that gets a lot closer to being inspired by radical islamists, whether you call them isis or al qaeda or whatever. >> you look at ways to try to prevent what happened in chattanooga intelligence comes into it. but then there's the other aspect. somebody who's battling mental illness. somebody who may have been a radicalized abroad. is there something you should have said abdulazeez should have popped up on some radar? >> this is the case we're most worried about we don't have a lot of warning signs, he has a mental state about him, he's very vulnerable to the propaganda that we're seeing from isis in other groups.
i believe that brainwashed him, he was sort of perfect prey for them and that's kind of the -- sort of the stereotype of the profile of the individual in the united states we're most worried about, the gaye before the shooting i passed out a counter violent extremist bill to help with deradicalization in the united states. how many more of these individuals are out there. we know the fbi stopped 60 we had 60 arrests last year that's more than one per week. we're doing a good job, it's just you can't stop all this. >> you can't be everywhere every time. >> congressman mike mccaul of texas. she was found dead in a jail cell hanged with a trash bag. how did this happen? did sandra bland die because of suicide or at someone else's hands? surveillance video inside the jail does not show much another
video might offer insight. this comes as her sister demands to know what really happened. and that sister will join me next on the lead. big day? ah, the usual. moved some new cars. hauled a bunch of steel. kept the supermarket shelves stocked. made sure everyone got their latest gadgets. what's up for the next shift? ah, nothing much. just keeping the lights on. (laugh) nice. doing the big things that move an economy. see you tomorrow, mac. see you tomorrow, sam. just another day at norfolk southern. leave early
my innocent daughter's life was snatched. >> today in texas, about an hour outside of houston, mountsing questions about whether a young woman took her own life in jail or whether it was taken while she was in police custody. 28-year-old sandra bland was arrested july 10th after a traffic stop she did not signal before changing lanes. three days later, she was found hanging in her jail cell. new video of emt's at her cell
offer little help into the investigation. ryan tell us what you saw? >> this is interesting, because a sheriff took us back there, and wanted to give us the details about the investigation. we talked to him as he walked back to cell number 95. he told us everything is in the same arrangement that it was the day sandra die. he showed us the bed, there's food still in there. they removed a plastic bag that she, according to the sheriff, used to hang herself has been removed, you can see the trash can in the center of the jail cell. she used the plastic liner to twist and hang herself from. they want to know how that's possible. the sheriff detailed how investigators have fit into the
corner of the jail cell to see if anyone could get inside there without tripping the video system it works by motion, if anyone walks down the hallway that video system starts i can tell you there's more questions than answered at this point. >> this investigation is still being treated just as it would be in a murder investigation. >> bland was found unresponsive in her jail cell three days after she was arrested. her death was ruled a suicide. the texas rangers and the fbi are investigating her death. surveillance footage of the halt way showed no one entering or leaving before her body was discovered. bland refused a breakfast tray around 6:30 a.m. and responded to a jailer around 7:00 a.m. telling him, i'm fine.
>> she requested a phone call,i can't do it any more. okay? . and then i believe it was like page 56 again a female guard walks back here asks if she wants to go out in the recreation yard. >> officers check on bland and calling for emergency response she was pronounced dead a short time later. >> there's a lot more questions that we have than answers for sure. >> it leaves you doing more than just scratching your head. >> he was able to identify glitches in jumps. he questions what if any medical attention she received. he wants to know what's in the arrest report. there's no way she would have committed suicide. >> seven days later i don't know what happened to my baby sister.
>>. >> she was arrested after assaulting a police officer. the family's attorney says an independent autopsy shows deep tissue bruising to bland's back what he says is consistent with someone having kneed her in the back. the arresting officer has been placed on administrative leave, and the district attorney after talking with bland's family and people who last talked with her, including a bail bonds man said there are questions that need to be answered. >> it needs a thorough and exhaustive review. it will go to grand jury. >> jake there's really two parts to this investigation. one, people want to know why she was pulled over and even arrest ed ed. and also, people want to know what happened to her at the jail. >> ryan young in texas, thanks so much. >> let's talk more with her sister. as well as the family's attorney. thank you for being here.
miss cooper the deepest condolences for the loss of your baby sister. what do you think happened? >> i have to be honest with you, i don't know and i appreciate your sentiment there, i will tell you based off of all that we've learned, we have far more questions now than we had seven days ago, that we still don't have answers to. >> she had just moved to texas for a new job, she left you a voice mail about the job hours before her arrest. you gave us that voice mail. let me play a portion of it now. >> the job i came down here for. >> did you have any indications that there was anything amiss, anything at all, any history of mental illness? >> no jake i have to be honest with you, i know it's been a point of contention over the past couple days there was a
facebook post out there on her blog about struggling with depression and ptsd i want to be clear that i think those are very finite terms, those were not things she was clinically diagnosed with by any stretch of the imagination, if you listen to the totality of the tape she was feeling down. it more transitioned to inspirational and telling people to keep going. folks that were struggling with those types of things keep pushing and keep going. >> a bystander took the video of sandra's arrest we showed earlier, you can hear her shouting at the trooper on the side of the road there is this police dashcam video that's supposed to be released later today, you have seen the dashcam video, what does it show that this video does not show. >> the interaction between the
police officer and -- >> go ahead. >> i'm sorry, it shows the interaction between sandra and the police officer, he gets out of his car and approaches on the passenger side he asks for the license and insurance. he goes back runs her name and approaches on the driver's side. thereafter, he asks her to put out her cigarette. she's in her car. the officer is irritated she doesn't want to put out her zret. when he opens the door she reaches for her cell phone so far she can record the activity it's at that time that she's subject to him pulling out his taser and then she gets out of the car without any assistance by the officer. they walk to the back of the car and leave the field of view of the camera. >> what's the official explanation as to why she was taken in and put in jail for three days? >> well they charged her with
assaulting a peace officer. but i think the real issue is the traffic violation, did he maybe get out of the car. it seems the only reason why, his ego was bruised and he felt she reacted. >> you're expecting full results from the independent autopsy soon. are there any preliminary findings anything you've been told about your sister's condition. >> one of the things that came up in the preliminary findings she did have a deep tissue bruising to her back. consistent with the video that's been published. >> god bless both of you. i hope that your family is able to survive in this difficult time many thank you for joining us today. >> thank you, jake.

movement of both the khorasan group and isis. he was leaving the network called the khorasan group. they were believed to be plotting external attacks, there have been a number of air strikes over recent months against their facilities. al fadli not just the leader of the group, the u.s. believes he was one of the few al qaeda operatives that had advanced warning of the 9/11 attacks, he knew that was coming in september 2001 he's responsible for additional terrorist attacks against u.s. marines in kuwait and a french cargo vessel. a lot of concern about getting this guy, here's the most fascinating thing. this was a targeted strike they knew he was in that vehicle, how did they have the intelligence

profit what the doctor says in the video raises questions about that claim. tom, plan parenthood had apologized for the tone in the previous video, and the tone and the actions in this video might be upsetting. >> it's going to upset some folks, in a casual way in which this doctor talks about fetuses in some abortions. this group opposed to abortion rights starts with the discussion of buying tissue from aborted fetuses. >> what would you expect for in tact tissue? what sort of compensation? what sort of -- >> why don't you start by telling me what you're used to paying. >> that's a planned parenthood official in california on the edited video, she starts discussing a cost of $75 per tissue am is a am while
repeatedly saying her group is not in it for the money. >> we don't want to be in the position of being accused of selling tissues. on the other hand there are crooks -- >> exactly. >> way higher than that. i'd like to start at around 100. >> okay the doctor then suggests the clinic could change the method of abortion to get more useful intact specimens. >> are you looking at 8 and 9 specimens? >> 10 to 12 week end of the first trimester, if those are pretty in tact specimens, then that's something we can work with. >> how much -- how he feels about using a less -- >> both techniques are valid and safe they find it all
troubling. >> you can't give even the faintest suggestion you're going to change the technique, because you have an interest in getting fetal tissue. those are boundaries that can't be crossed, they were pretty close to crossing them and i think that's ethically wrong. >> planned parenthood denied selling organs from fetuses saying payments just cover operational costs. response to this new video, nobody could tell exactly what was discussed because of the extremely heavy editing, the agenda the activists who produced it and the fact that the original footage has not been made available. >> it's been years since i talked about compensation. let me figure out what i'm getting at. >> the organization behind the video has also posted eye much longer version online. we don't know independently if it shows the entire encounter that day, we know the planned
parenthood says it's all part of a campaign to shut down abortion rights. we know that selling body parts from aboortzed fetuses is illegal. senator rand paul who is running for president says he will demand a vote on ending federal funding to planned parenthood that's about $500 million a year we'll see if anything comes of that. jake? >> tom foreman, thank you so much. today's politics lead. now, the 16th major republican candidate he used themes of unity and support to kick off his campaign today. but are donald trump's insults and name calling rounding out the competition. carly fiorina is raring to be heard. things she wants to talk about next. trol my blood sugar. today, i'm asking about levemir®. vo: levemir® is an injectable insulin that can give you blood sugar

trump a republican presidential front-runner. enjoying the lead of any republican candidate so far. he has 24% of the vote. scott walker is in second place, the polling process was ending just as the controversy was beginning over trump's remarks questioning the war heroism of john mccain. he made things even more trumpy by giving out the cell phone number of another republican rival. to be fair that senator yesterday said trump was becoming a "jackass." dana bash filed this report from bluffton south carolina. >> let me explain something. >> reporter: donald trump, a barrage of criticism. >> they didn't like the way that you know the little -- i'm a little loud i'm a little too strong. they don't like it. >> the reality tv star with a
flair for drama, took presidential politics to another surreal level. >> i see your senator, what a stiff. >> fellow republican presidential candidate said this to cnn. >> he's becoming a jackass. >> he calls me a jackass. >> standing in graham's home state of south carolina trump retaliated by reading allowed the senator's personal cell phone number. >> he gave me his number and i found the card. i wrote the number down i don't know if it's the right number let's try it. >> why did you read lindsey graham's cell phone number? >> so people can call him. so he did maybe get something done, but he won't be able to. >> graham now unable to be reached by cell responded through his campaign manager saying donald trump continues to show hourly that he is ill prepared to be commander in chief. all this amid a back and forth
with the des moines register. he was asked to pull the plug on his bloviateing side show. all told some 1100 people in the main auditorium and an overflow room trump visited at his speech. many waited online for hours to get in. >> he's a doer. >> i think he's terrific. he tells the truth. >> not everyone who came was a supporter. >> he scares me. >> he scares you, but you're still here? >> yeah well, i want to see him, he's a celebrity. >> he's causing so much controversy with comments like john mccain's war service. >> he just disappointed me. i wasn't offended but i was disappointed. >> it's not a deal breaker? >> no not yet. >> all this as the 16th gop white house hopeful john kasich
was making his candidacy official. >> we are going to take the lessons of the heartland and straighten out washington, d.c., and fix our country. >> strong speech from a governor overseeing a recovering ohio largely overshadowed by the donald. >> back to graham here at least his campaign tried to make light of donald trump's cell phone stunt by tweeting probably getting a new phone, iphone or android. jake as you probably know either would be an upgrade nor graham he still has a flip phone until now. >> thank you so much. let's talk more with the presidential race with 2016 presidential candidate carly fiorina. we should also point out she's a former panelist on the lead. welcome back i have to call you miss fiorina now i think. i want to make sure does donald trump have your phone number? >> no he znl the. >> what do you make of this all.
lindsey graham's campaign manager saying because of trump's bombastic and ridiculous campaign we're not talking about obama's horrible deal with iran or clinton's plans on the failed national security agenda do you think trump is hurting the republican cause? >> i do think donald trump taps into an anger that i feel out there as well. people are tired of professional politicians. because all they do is talk nothing really changes. and we have longstanding problems in this nation whether it's sanctuary cities that have been around for 15 years or an insecure border which has been around 25 years. think about what you have been talking about on your show today. we had a terrorist attack at a military base on u.s. soil. we have hearings going on because a young woman was killed by a felon who had to be deported several times and was nevertheless lulling around in san francisco. we have a planned parenthood
video that is depraved and nothing else and the callous nature with which these people are talking about an unborn child and their organs. i mean these are all huge stories. and they point to the serious issues that face this nation, and so i think eventually voters are going to say, you know what all of this talk isn't solving a single problem. nor is the fact that hillary clinton won't answer single question and doesn't talk about any of the questions of the day. >> it's a problem for candy dates like you who are in the bottom tier you have to are on the top ten to be on the stage with me at the main debate in at the reagan library in september. how do you breakthrough? >> i launched my campaign on may 4th at that point the imagine
order of the american people had never heard my name. we are continuing to gain measurable momentum. polls this far out aren't very predictive. at this point, everyone said jimmy carter couldn't win, ronald reagan couldn't win, bill clinton couldn't win, barack obama couldn't win. they were all wrong. i think the american people will sort it out. >> we see on the left huge movement by the liberal women's groups to support hillary clinton, why aren't we seeing women's groups on the right, republican women's groups doing the same for you? >> i think there's more support out there that be you might realize, it's pretty shameful that a lot of these lib rl women's groups have called my candidacy offensive. really these are people who support women and yet they're offended by the idea of my candidacy? that's about politics, jake that's not about supporting women, that's about politics and
ideology pure and simple. i think you need to think through why all these liberal women's groups are calling my candidacy offensive, and why they're supporting hillary clinton. >> i get why they call your candidacy names, they're liberal. i wonder why there aren't the republican women's groups. why they're not behind you, but maybe i should ask them and not you. >> let's turn to the question of abortion i know you want to talk about it one of your opponents signed a law in wisconsin this week which would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks of a pregnancy on twitter, hillary clinton said governor walker signed dangerous abortion restrictions in the law in wisconsin, without exceptions for rape or incest. she called this extreme and unacceptable walker retweeted her and called her out of touch with most americans. what's your position on this legislation which does not allow exceptions for rape and incest? >> let's talk about the legislation that's sitting on the senate floor right now,
which does allow for those exceptions. let's also talk about hillary clinton's position. let's talk about what extreme is. it's not a life until it leaves the hospital. that's hillary clinton's position. it's hillary clinton's position that a 13-year-old girl needs her mother's permission to go to a tanning salon or a tattoo, but not to get an abortion. women should not be permitted to look an an ultrasound before an abortion and yet people are trying to harvest body parts can uzan ultrasound to make sure that those body parts are preserved so they can be sold that jake is extreme. >> just to clarify, you think there should be a provision for rape and incest? >> i would be delighted if once the media would ask hillary clinton about her extreme position. it's not a life until it leaves the hospital. my position is very clear.
it's been clear and consistent since 2010. yes, i support exceptions but the majority of the american people now believe that abortion for any reason at all, to be paid for by taxpayers after five months is an abomination. this videotape, whether you're a prochoice woman or prolife woman, this videotape is depraved. the casual nature with which these people are talking about fetuses, tissue and specimens. if a woman was looking at that ultrasound at that same stage in her pregnancy. the doctor would not be talking about fetuses, specimens or tissues. they would be saying look at your baby's heartbeat, eyes organs. >> carly fiorina, thank you so much. we look forward to secretary clinton coming on the show and taking the questions. >> i hope she will. >> i do as well. >> thank you so much. the money lead it has no graphic images no racy music, the next big technicality keeping this commercial about

welcome back to "the lead." the money lead it could be a commercial for anything. millennials, a strobe heavy concert, in their spare time but this is not an ad for just anything it is an ad for mayor want to specifically for can cannabis oil and accessories. with frol laws against the legality of marijuana, still in place in the federal government of course, regulating the airwaves it gets a little hazy. so the commercial is set to be the first of its kind last night. was polled by the local abc
affiliate kmgh due to legal concerns. abc corporate says it's investigating the legality of such an ad. our buried lead looks like something out of a sci-fi movie. an unmanned drone, armed with a handgun. firing shot after shot into the woods. an 18-year-old engineering student created it and posted video of his flight on youtube, what could go wrong. let's get to renee marsh. >> we know that an 18-year-old of clinton connecticut is the mastermind behind that remote control drone firing shots. as alarming as that video may be there's not much police can do it would seem to the average person there should be something prohibiting a person from
attaching a weapon to a drone, but at this point we can't find anything that's been violated. clinton police say from a criminal law enforcement stance it's perfectly legal to shoot your gun on your private property if it's done in a safe money manner and at this point they're saying they have no indication that anyone's life was in danger. we do know though faa is also investigating, we're waiting to see what they have to say. >> this seems to be another example of laws way behind technology. >> you are absolutely right. it's very far behind. i spoke with a former faa chief of drones he says look there is this gray area simply because of the technology moving so fast and the laws are not moving as fast you have a situation where law enforcement aren't sure what they can do. >> those guys with their aol
and mindspring accounts. looking forward to them getting on the job. >> check out cnn go. be sure to follow me on facebook or twitter. you can tweet the show @thelead. i'm officially turning you over to mr. wolf blitzer in the situation room. happening now, breaking news terror leader killed a long time al qaeda operative taken up in a targeted air strike in northern syria, how did the u.s. find him. and is death disrupting american targets. al qaeda inspiration, new indications that the chattanooga gunman may have been a follower of a radical american al qaeda cleric is al qaeda now posing a new terror threat to the u.s. donald trump
